My particular ‘Poem in Which’ had been around in various guises for some time before it was trimmed, tidied and re-named for submission. The magazine is full of interesting stuff so do take a look.
The Stare’s Nest poem ‘Beyond North’ was a runner-up in this year’s Ver poetry competition and published in the resulting pamphlet.
I’m also pleased to say I have a poem in the new Bare Fiction magazine, out this month. If you haven’t seen it yet do try to get hold of a copy. There are some fabulous poems from Dan O’Brien and many others, as well as stories and scripts. I’m looking forward to reading at the launch in Birmingham on the 11th of December.
In other good news, the recently published anthology Double Bill
from independent publisher Red Squirrel has been chosen by Clive James as one of his books of the year in the TLS. You can read a little about the book here.
Finally, Happenstance poet and long-term blogger Matthew Stewart has kindly included this blog in his list of favourite British poetry blogs for this year. Lovely to be in the company of so many fine writers, most, if not all of whom, are listed on the right of this page and whose sites I visit regularly. Matthew’s selection highlights the diversity of approaches to blogging (or ‘cobwebbing’, as John Foggin would have it) . You can read Matthew’ s list here.
